"Typical open pit privies with improper cover. No effort made to fly-proof or rat proof these privies. Inside, dirty and entrance littered with human feces. One is a girl's and the other is a boys' privy. No washing facilities whatsoever in any school toilet in the so-called 'Mexican Ward School'. Lids are not self-closing, and there is no toilet paper whatsoever."
